About this eBook

Preface and u n d e r e m p l o y m e n t are becoming a global concern and the situation is getting more serious with the continuous rise in the population. More than half of the world s unemployed youth are present in the region and majority of Asia s unemployed youth are Indians. Only a limited number of unemployed youth in India could be engaged in the coming time. The number of jobs in organized sector is decreasing every year due to which the gravity of unemployment among the youth is increasing.

Such a demand-driven growth, taking place mostly in developing countries, will call for greater emphasis on harvesting, storing and processing facilities. Government and the industry must prepare themselves for long-term policies and investment that will satisfy consumer demand for food of animal origin, improve nutrition, income and employment opportunities. Generation and dissemination of appropriate technologies to enhance production and productivity should be given greater attention. We should take the advantage of the emerging trade opportunities in various livestock, poultry and agriculture-based commodities, services and animal products. India has the advantage of having diverse agroclimatic conditions, rich biodiversity, competent professional s work force and cheap labour apart from huge number of livestock population. Emphasis should be laid down on those commodities in which particular country has the cost advantage and also
